Beefless Stew

When I first became a vegetarian many years ago, one of the first recipes I adapted was my mother’s beef stew. Back then I used tempeh and browned it in oil. But once I discovered TVP chunks, I liked them even better. This stew is super low in fat and a complete meal in itself!

Thai Noodles

Hints: Rice vinegar and chili garlic sauce may be found in most supermarkets in the oriental section. One brand of chili-garlic sauce is made by Huy Fong Foods. It is quite spicy, so you may need to adjust the amount used according to your tastes. I use a small amount of sesame oil in this recipe for the unique taste it adds to foods. It may be omitted, if desired. This dish keeps well in the refrigerator and may also be served cold. This is great to fix on those busy evenings when everyone is eating at different times because it tastes best at room temperature.

Hints: Rice noodles are available in most markets and natural food stores. They usually take very little time to cook and most packages will have detailed directions on the labels.
